Emma & Riley Sunshine Coast Homestead Wedding

I have been waiting to share this wedding for a while now, recently featured on Hello May, the very special Emma, owner of Wild Heart Weddings and one of the darlings from A Darling Affair tied the knot with Riley, a super groovy sailor/pirate whom you can't help but be terribly fond of :) 

When a wedding planner plans their own wedding, you get a weekend long celebration at Kenliworth Homestead and a wedding that knocks your socks off!!! With some of the most talented sunshine coast wedding vendors along with the help of friends and family their wedding came to life, Willow Bud Wedding Flowers created the beautiful bouquet and that fabulous floral wreath while Ginger, Lily and Rose filled the reception with stunning florals. Simply Style Co was all over the styling, from the rustic ceremony pews to the happy hour lounges & styling and finally the reception lighting, crockery, centrepiece decorations and beautiful old wine barrels from Brisbane Barrel Hire. You can see Chelsea in action decorating a table below.

So special that Emma’s sister, Carmel McGee, was their celebrant and did get a little teary during the ceremony. The dance floor lit up when The Dawn Chorus started performing and went on late into the night and after at the bonfire with a few sing alongs.

A Darling Affair Sunshine Coast 2014

Finally got our film scans back from last months A Darling Affair at The Chapel Woombye. We have grown so much since the start of this year and in addition to us moving to film photography we want our couples to be able to choose from the coolest print products available to display their photographs, which we sourced from all over the world. We put a lot of work into our stall this year displaying most of our new product range and we think it looked amazing!! It could not have been done without the help of two amazing vendors, big thanks to these guys:

Clare from The Flower Planner brought our stall to life with amazing florals and also created the floral arch on our photo booth turf backdrop, check her out if you are looking for a super talented florist :)

The girls from Style Le Aisle provided us with stunning furniture and styling items, if you are looking for a stylist or furniture and styling items you need to see their stuff.

See below our stall, our new turf photo booth background and pics from the fashion shows :)

A Darling Affair always puts on some great fashion shows at their fairs and these two shows were brought to you by the following talented vendors: Fashion show fit out & florals -  Twig and Grace Hair & Makeup - The Beauty Case &  Sass & Niki & Boudoir Blush Dresses - Judy Copley Bridal & Begitta Suits - Urbbana Men’s Fashion Lounge Styling - Simply Style Co

Alex & Blake's Maleny Wedding

These two were besotted with each other!! From the moment Alex walked down the aisle they could not take their eyes off each other, its love like this that gives me butterflies in my stomach when I'm taking pictures.

Alex's special memory from her wedding day? The moment my dad and I were standing outside the chapel waiting to go in. He squeezed my hand and asked if I was ready. It was probably the most nervous I felt but I couldn't wait to see Blake's face

Wedding DIY: There were many a weekend and bottles of champagne spent with my bridesmaids making 'the finishing touches'. We painted and glittered the 'LOVE' for the fireplace, handmade and wrote the name tags for the cupcake boxes, created the menus and tied on the little bows, photo frame inserts, the paper cones for the flowers and the navy table runners.

Advice for future brides?: Only think about yourself and your husband. It sounds selfish but if you are thinking about how everyone else is feeling you won't enjoy the best day of your life. Many a night I lay awake worried that the guests wouldn't enjoy themselves but on the day I thought ' I have done everything to make this day perfect and reflect us....I can't do anything else now. ENJOY'...and make sure WEMZ is a part of your day!!

A Darling Affair Sunshine Coast 2014 Style Shoot

We photographed this gorgeous winter sun wedding style shoot to promote Sunshine Coast wedding fair A Darling Affair to be held at The Chapel Woombye THIS Saturday July, 19th.

Designed to be a wedding fair with a difference, visitors can enjoy a relaxed picnic in the winter sun with live music by J&R Music & Love Note and stunning wedding fashion shows as well as all the new wedding ideas from the coolest and most creative wedding vendors around. This shoot is a little peek into what the wedding fair will be like, with an amazing team of talented vendors we created this shoot inspired by the relaxed winter sunshine!

Real life couple Laini & Jordan acted as models for the shoot, after some years of marriage and a couple of kids these two are still madly in love and it was such a pleasure photographing them. The Beauty Case painted Lani’s gorgeous lips with a fire engine red while also grooming Jordan ever so lightly :) Willow Bud created all of the gorgeous floral arrangements for the shoot, an amazing floral wreath and something a little different with Laini wearing a large wrist corsage. Love My Food  catered a deliciously beautiful picnic, yummy!! We love anything Pineapple and Hayley from Wholehearted Studio added the prefect colours with pineapple cushions, a bush radio, whimsical giant balloons, and the newest supplier to hit the scene - Frozen Sunshine Blocks with their refreshing handcrafted ice block range.
